The Energy Formula in a Moving Reference Frame
The energy formula quoted by Green, Ludlam and McIlveen (1966) requires an additional term if it refers to a frame moving over the Earth's surface. The correction is derived for steady motion of the frame and tested observationally. The error incurred by ignoring the motion of a weather system is discussed.
